We got a lot of snow....last week it snowed and snowed and snowed for days. i do not recall ever seeing it like this here before. On the last morning of the storm, when i woke up, i went to peek out the blinds to see what had really came down....i was a little afraid to look and i was shocked by what i saw. Not only was there a ton of it but it was beautiful!!! clinging to the trees and fences, and everything really.
We got nearly 3 feet, and on the last night of the storm the winds blew and made drifts in some spots that were even higher. When Chris was done shoveling the driveway, I could look out the front window and there was snow piled up about a 1/4 of the way up from the windowsill.
The kids played despite the effort. I don't know how they walked in it because it was in some places deeper than Mitchell. I went out on a rescue mission when Mitchell lost his boot and glove in the snow, and i was walking in snow that came to my mid thigh. Crazy!!! He insisted on being carried home. I did not want to but i really did not blame him. so i threw him over my shoulder, fireman carry style, and tried to keep us both upright on the way home.
Avery is just like Chris, she could stay out in it for days...jumping in it, making snow angels, digging paths...does not matter as long as she can be in the snow. It was funny to watch her make snow seats all along the path i had dug them through the backyard so that it was easier to get to the door to get in.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD student. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and baby Delilah who is 4. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
